Police-Mental Health Collaboration Self-Assessment Tool

By The CSG Justice Center

The self-assessment tool helps law enforcement agencies and their behavioral health partners assess their progress toward implementing high quality partnership-based interventions. This tool is designed to provide resources to help improve responses to calls for service for people with mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use conditions.

Police-Mental Health Collaboration Toolkit


This toolkit provides resources for law enforcement agencies to partner with service providers, advocates, and people with mental illnesses and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The goal of these partnerships is to ensure the safety of all, to respond effectively, and to improve access to services and supports for people with mental illnesses and I/DD.

Law Enforcement-Mental Health Learning Sites

By The CSG Justice Center

With support from a team of national experts and BJA, the CSG Justice Center began the learning sites program in 2010 as a way to help public safety personnel implement effective responses to people with mental health needs. The program started with an initial group of 6 highly innovative agencies to serve as peer-to-peer learning sites. Since then, it has continued to expand and regularly deliver assistance and training to law enforcement and mental health practitioners nationwide. The current 14 sites serve as a resource for agencies looking to tailor successful implementation strategies and response models to address their own distinct problems and circumstances.

Center for Justice and Mental Health Partnerships

The Center for Justice and Mental Health Partnerships offers free training, resources, and support to communities wanting to improve outcomes or enhance current responses for people in their criminal justice systems who have a mental illness or co-occurring substance use disorder. It helps communities safely implement best practices to divert people away from the criminal justice system and connect them to treatment and supports while also promoting public safety. The training and support center is administered by the CSG Justice Center with support from BJA.
